NASHVILLE – David Weekley Homes, the nation’s largest privately-held home builder, is entering the Nashville market. Houston-based Weekley expects to begin construction either late fourth quarter of this year, or early first quarter of 2015.
“The growth and economic development in Nashville has attracted the attention of regional and national developers to begin new communities in the city,” said David Weekley, chairman of David Weekley Homes. “David Weekley Homes has built in more master-planned communities than just about any other builder in the country, and we are very pleased to have the opportunity to bring our award-winning homes to the Nashville market.”
David Weekley Homes is under contract to build in the master-planned community of Durham Farms, a mixed-use, Traditional Neighborhood Development of more than 1,000 single-family homes and townhomes, said Jon Calbert, area president for David Weekley Homes for Charlotte, Charleston, Hilton Head, Atlanta, Raleigh and Tennessee.
The builder’s first product in Durham Farms will be homes situated on 50- and 70-foot homesites, with prices expected to start from the mid $300s and low $400s, respectively.
Weekley is also considering news communities in Franklin and Brentwood in Williamson County.
Earlier this year, Weekley entered the Chicago market. David Weekley Homes was founded 1976 in Houston and has built more than 70,000 homes and operates in 19 markets across the country. The company was named the 2013 National Builder of the Year by Professional Builder magazine.
